Release notes are available at https://www.dropbox.com/release_notes, which also has a handy drop down to differentiate stable from testing builds.

(1.5.30, currently atop Iusethis, for example, is a testing build. Last stable as of 9/18/12 was 1.4.17.)

When I stared using an external USB drive as my primary work drive, I felt like I had been liberated because I could work ANYWHERE.

I was pretty skeptical about Dropbox. I installed it and tinkered a little.

Without using it, it slowly dawned on me that the beauty to Dropbox is that I'm working in a local directory -- not an external drive or a network drive. It's a LOCAL directory that gets synced to the Dropbox server in the background.

Surely, since I work on Windows and Macs and Linux there's no way it'll handle all that gracefully.

You know what? It handles the differences pretty seamlessly! In fact, I was making more of a mess with Unison and my external drive while Dropbox was keeping everything sync-ed properly.

Today: no more external drive. I'm proud to support Dropbox with a paid subscription!

Version 1.0.10 was released last month with support for selective sync and support for syncing resource forks and extended attributes. The download is 20% smaller, runs faster and memory usage has been reduced by up to 50%. What's not to like? ;-)

@bonj : thanks for the tip about Cloud :)

Extremely useful. I use this to sync important files between all my computers (both OSX and Windows) and it's very fast. Whenever I''m on another computer without Dropbox installed, I can still access the files on the web. I used to use this to host images temporarily too, but now I use CloudApp for that.
